Chimney inspection Northern VA is essential to keep your fireplace safe. If you chimney is not clean, it does not work efficiently. It is likely to be blocked by soot, tar, creosote, twigs, bird’s nests, and other debris. If it is, it cannot properly vent the smoke that comes from the fire in your fireplace.
The smoke may backdraft into the room, causing discomfort and health problems. The debris that sticks on the chimney walls may even catch fire putting your family in danger.
You put your house at risk of chimney fires if the chimney is not inspected on a regular basis. Whether you have a standard or a prefabricated fireplace, you need to hire professional chimney sweepers to conduct a thorough inspection. You have to have the entire system inspected and swept, including flue, smoke chamber, throat, and firebox to ensure that the chimney is clean from top to bottom so that it can do its work efficiently.
Your chimney may deteriorate over time. The flue may be blocked. There may be fissures in the chimney liner. These flaws are high risks for fires. If they go undetected, they can cause flare-ups and fires in the chimney which can spread easily. These flaws can also cause carbon monoxide and other dangerous gases to build up in your home.
Experts in fire prevention recommend an annual chimney inspection by professionals. Only people who are trained in thorough chimney inspection and cleaning can probe the chimney inside-out and check the hearth and firebox meticulously. Only trained professionals can detect the flaws and determine how best to address them. Only experienced individuals can repair the flaws so that potentially dangerous fires are prevented. Inspections are inexpensive – but the cost to life and property is enormous if these inspections are not conducted and fires occur.
